I was born in Rochester, New York and was raised in Caracas, Venezuela.
I moved back to the States and worked my way through school at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I graduated with a double major in Photography and Sculpture in 1996. I was then awarded a Fulbright Grant, which gave me the opportunity to live and study abroad for a year in Barcelona, Spain.
Upon returning I worked as the Technical Instructor to the Visual Arts Program at MIT, and stayed with it for the next 7 years.
While at MIT, I worked summer and winter breaks as an art handler/installer at institutions such as The DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston and The McMullen Museum of Art at Boston College.
For the last 10 years I have been building award winning window displays, trade show booths and one-of-a-kind retail displays and fixtures for some of the coolest and cutting edge brands in the world.
I have also built theater sets for companies such as The Wheelock Family Theater, The Gold Dust Orphans, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company and Varla Jean Merman. Additionally I have been the Production Designer for a couple of Independent films being in charge of everything from sets and props to wardrobe.
